PRODUCT SUSTAINABILITY – THROUGH DESIGN, MANUFACTURE AND USE
Fostering a climate of collaboration to transform road maintenance problems into an environmentally, financially and socially sustainable solution – EarthCo Projects Pty Ltd, VIC
PolyCom Stabilising Aid is an Australian-made road stabiliser, distributed in Victoria, NSW and Tasmania by Earthco Projects Pty Ltd. It is used for the construction and maintenance of sealed and unsealed roads, road shoulders, airstrips and other pavements.
A cost-effective and sustainable alternative to traditional soil stabilisation, PolyCom creates a stronger, longer lasting pavement and offers significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, water usage and maintenance expenses.
PolyCom Stabilising Aid is listed with ECO-Buy’s green purchasing directory ECO-Find. It is environmentally inert and does not leach into soil or leave residue in water run-off.
Dedicated to creating a sustainable system of road maintenance and improving the knowledge base of the industry, Earthco Projects’ commitment extends to:
Partnership with Swinburne University to research PolyCom’s performance in road maintenance
On-site project support for works officers and engineers
Sponsorship of a MWOA skills enhancements program for training and mentoring of municipal workers
Collaboration with stakeholders to review reporting practices, sustainability data and assist with process changes.
Earthco Projects works closely with Councils and other road makers, fostering a climate of collaboration to transform their road maintenance problems into an environmentally, financially and socially sustainable solution.
